This quarter seems to be the biggest yet in book adaptations! Although July is quite sparse, August and September more than makes up for the lack of movies. There are some exciting releases this quarter adapted from popular fiction! Continue reading “BOOKS & COMICS HITTING THE BIG SCREEN IN 2018 | PART III”
The last challenge… a thank you! I couldn’t see myself doing this, cause even the idea feels sappy. But I thought it wasn’t half a bad idea to ‘close’ off this challenge so to speak. (And perhaps challenging myself a little by doing something outside my comfort zone!)
This challenge is about writing a thank you to someone, be it J.K. Rowling, the characters of the Harry Potter world or anyone else. Essentially, we’re telling the world what this series, characters and world means to us!
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.” — J.K. Rowling
Welcome to the fifth day of the Harry Potter challenge week. This day was allocated as ‘the wildcard’, meaning bloggers were allowed to create their own topic for this challenge. As the title says, below I’ll be recounting (some of) my favourite quotes from the series – and I’ll make sure not to leave out which character said what and from which book/movie.
Beware; a lot of these are sappy, inspirational quotes or quotes about friendship and love. I’ve put a few humorous ones in the mix too – but the sappy quotes are the ones I gravitate towards too!
Hello friends! The fourth challenge for Weird Zeal’s week long challenge was actually supposed to be a story time… but apparently I’m boring and don’t have one!
Instead I’ll be advancing to the next challenge, my favourite ships. Which is pretty self explanatory, but before I begin, this list is very het. I must admit, I don’t care for ships that much within the Harry Potter universe. I do however have enough to make this list!
My favourite characters are kind of an ever changing list. I think I have some hardcore favourites that never leave this list (ahem Luna.) But this franchise is obviously home to many great characters, it’s kind of hard not to have them on rotation! This topic needs very little of an explanation, so let’s get too it!
The second challenge for day two of the Harry Potterversary week is pretty self explanatory! In my announcement post I said I’d rank both the movies and the books but it turns out it’s been too long since I read the books… they’ve all meshed together in my head a bit. It feels unfair to rank them because I don’t remember much and have only read them through once each.
The movies however… I’ve seen so many times. So it was almost easy. I say almost because I feel as though this list changes seasonally. I pretty much made my list based on which movie I’d rather watch first before the others. My choices aren’t based on what is critically better than the other. Rather, this list is primarily based on feeling! For obvious reasons: watch out for spoilers for the movies below!
AND SO IT BEGINS!
The first official blog post that kicks of my week of Harry Potter related posts is The Hogwarts tag! Creator of the tag is not currently known at this point. This tag is supposed to illustrate a sliver of what my life would possibly be like at Hogwarts.
Through my blogger friend Caroline (at Fictionologyst) I discovered a Harry Potter related challenge created by Weird Zeal! As always, I’m late to the party. Later than most with this one because the week long challenge has already begun. (On June 20th to be exact.)
However, I thought this was such a fun idea, so I thought I’d spread the word. And this blog has rarely mentioned Harry Potter – aside from a T5W post about my favourite fandom items. You’d honestly think I’d never read or watched the series. But of course like most of the global population, I’m a fan.
So on the 21st anniversary of the publication of the Harry Potter books, I’m going to begin the challenges (as outlined in Weird Zeal’s blog post.) for every day beginning June 26th. I’ve outlined the challenges below and what you’ll expect on the blog this week!
As April is upon us, it’s time to share the next installment in this series of book to movie adaptations being released in the second quarter of 2018! These releases at first seemed a little lacklustre compared with Part One, as there aren’t a lot of mainstream blockbusters adapted from books releasing this quarter. However upon closer look, these smaller films have a lot of intrigue to them despite the lack of marketing they receive down under.
I’ve denoted all the films I personally want to see with a an asterisk (*), please let me know if there are any films you’re interested in or definitely won’t be seeing either in cinemas or from your couch. 😜 Perhaps you’ve read some of the source material too!
I love that a there’s a tag that exists that lets me talk about TV Shows! I watch them as much as I read, if not (guiltily) more. After seeing Riley Marie and GingerReadsLaney both make their own videos on booktube, I was motivated to participate! This awesome tag was created by Kayley Hyde if you’d like to participate in the conversation. Maybe I’ll add something to your ‘to-watch’ list as well… 😛
